This is a fine carving tool. I had read other evaluations that had me prepared to need to go shopping for an "ove glove" to be able to carve with this tool. I carved for a while with it and never noticed it getting hot. I reminded me of a dremmel tool. It was about that loud and about that same temperature. As for how well it did, I was surprised that the tools that come with the tool are not really what I would call detail tools. I have used it to work on a wooden chain that I am carving out of pine. The unit is good for large work. I am going to buy some additional chisels with smaller gouges and chisels for the detail work. This unit does do good work inside the house without generating dust. It complements my power carvers and my palm chisels and knives.

I would just like others to be aware that they may not receive the Proxxon Power Carver MOS they think they are purchasing. I just ordered this unit but upon receiving it realized it was a Power Carver MSG. I wanted the MOS because I had read that it was an improved model over the previous one.
I was informed that the 38642 Power Carver SGM has been replaced with 38644 Power Carver MOS. The SGM is 12,000 cuts/min, the MOS is 10,000 cuts/min. The MOS has a more powerful motor and is a little larger than the SGM. The MOS has aluminum front housing.
In contacting Amazon they were helpful and great to deal with. They said I could return it or that they would offer me a 25% discount on what I had paid for the MOS I ordered on their site. I needed to start a project and didn't want to wait so I accepted their discount offer. I'm not sure of the price difference between the MOS and SGM models.
I can't comment on the MOS because I was sent the MSG model. It is quiet when running and did not seem to heat up in excess when working. It does seem like it may be somewhat underpowered for larger chisels and gouges. For smaller ones I think it will work fine.
If your heart is set on the MOS I hope you get the correct model shipped to you.

The Proxxon Power Carver works really well. I wish it had a variety of carving tips. I bought the adapter for my Flexcut carving blades. It helps, but the Proxxon Carver is now 4-5 inches away from the wood that is being carved. You would need two hands to carve with this set up. None the less, this is an excellent product. I use it all the time.

My husband has been using this tool since Christmas and has produced many beautiful carved wooden creations. He said it fits his hand perfectly, and he enjoys using it very much!

I purchased this carver for dad who is a wood-turner and provides blocks and molds for glassworkers. He needed a tool to finish what he started on the lathe. I compared several options (some of which were twice the price) before deciding on this one. Dad has been very happy with the performance of this tool. He purchased a larger chisel because the cutters which were provided with the tool weren't large enough. This tool is everything he expected. The Proxxon Power Carver works well with the larger chisel. The tool appears to be of good quality; I expect it to last a long time.

I like this, it removes a lot of wood quickly, but it does heat up a bit faster than I would like. Been carving mainly hemlock, butternut, ash and pine so far. As you would expect, ash is tough work, hemlock somewhat, but pine and butternut are a breeze.

I have been carving for ten yrs and find it a great help because of my age and find my hands do not work as they had been. The flex tool attachment lets you use the tools from that companies catalog.

I have been carving for 25+ years, always thought power carving was “cheating”. I was wanting to work on bigger pieces and found getting the wood secure and pounding gouges with a mallet was frustrating and time consuming. I bought a Proxxon 38644 Power Carver MSG with the deluxe set of Flexcut tools and am VERY happy! I now longer think it is cheating, it is smart! The Proxxon works like advertised. With sharp tools it cuts through all kinds of wood with little effort. It is well worth the investment! My carving productivity has increased dramatically. I have used the Proxxon on big pieces and small pieces, hardwoods and soft woods, all smooth as silk. Heat is no problem, noise is no problem. I HIGHLY recommend this versatile tool!
